Senate Advising

The Office for Student Engagement staff enjoys a close relationship with the Reed student senate. We attend senate meetings, meet with senate leadership and work with the treasury.

Student Senate Fall 2020

The student senate plays an influential role on Reed's campus. Senate is the voice of the students: its members fund student organizations, participate in campus policy-making, and work with the staff members to improve the quality of student life. If you would like to get involved or learn more about the election process, email a current senate member.

Student Opportunity Subsidy Committee

SOS Committee chair

Charlotte Thompson



Reed Student Body Senate Bylaws mandate that the interest earned from the Student Body Endowment shall go towards projects which broadly benefit the student body. A student committee, chaired by a student senator, and made up entirely of students, oversees the SOS program which may provide funds detailed below.

Discretionary grants assist students experiencing substantial financial hardship who would benefit significantly from a single grant of up to $2,000. This may include, but is not limited to, necessary medical costs, unexpected educational costs, or emergency travel costs. Please contact the SOS Committee chair directly for instructions on how to apply. Grants are available on a rolling basis throughout the year, and applications may be submitted through the final day of class.
